Quiet small museum in a lovely home which showcases the art of a significant Colombian painter. From his watercolors of his time in Florence to his return to Medellin and his social activist paintings, the art is intriguing and fascinating. The staff is friendly. there is a small snack bar outside on the grounds. There is a significantly unimpressive gift... More

This museum is located in the house where the painter lived. It is well preserved and there is an extensive collection of his work. It is outside the tourist area, not far from the Botanical Gardens. If you like art this is one of the best museums in the city. They sell a complete book of the artist's work and... More

The house is beautiful, also the impressive collection. This place, --close to it- Moravia Centre by Salmona, the Swimming Pools by Paisajes Emergentes and Parque Belen Library are the best places to visit in Medellin, the true alternative to an overrated and poor architecture quality buildings.

One of Medellin's most famous 20th artists. The museum is his house, studio, and gallery holding many of his most important works that cover the whole of Colombian culture. Located in the barrio (Comuna 4). A memorable experience not soon forgotten.

The house is about 15 minutes walk north of the botanical gardens but is not easy to find from the Lonely Planet map. We asked a policemen to who told us to go up a hill away from the main road and followed his directions and there is was. Very interesting life story and body of work although we preferred... More

The museum is an excellent place to explore Nel Gomez' paintings. I especially loved that the museum is placed in the middle of the "barrio popular". It really fits into the area and lets all of it shine.

I didn't know many of his works, expected the museum to be a little bit more modern art styled ... Everybody who likes his works will be satisfied I guess, many of his works there and a lot of history about Columbian art ... But if you are more into modern art you probably will be bored after some time
